Sir Ken Robinson was born in the United Kingdom in 1950. He is an international advisor on education in the arts, as well as an author and speaker.  His work within education has led to him collaborating with non-profit, education, arts organisations and government bodies. He was Director of the Arts in Schools Project between 1985 and 1989 and he worked as a Professor of Arts Education at the University of Warwick from 1989 to 2001, where he continues as a Professor Emeritus. In 2003 he was knighted for services to the arts.
